A kayaker was left amazed after bottlenose dolphins swam close to his kayak off the west coast of Scotland near the Isle of Coll.
The spectacular moment was caught on camera when Shane Wasik and Luke Saddler, as they paddled back to their main boat.
The dolphins appeared to start playing with one another in the bay as the kayakers looked on in amazement.
Mr Wasik said: “It was a really amazing experience but getting that close I was glad to get back to the boat.
“It’s still a wild animal that can weigh over half a tonne.”
“Even the locals were saying they have never seen them in the bay like that before.
“There was ten in the pod, all taking turns to jump and cartwheel. There was a calf with them as well.”
Mr Wasik runs Basking Shark Scotland and the visit from the dolphins came on the group’s first trip of the season.
The duo were certainly treated to a spectacular show.
